Flubber - Physics Makes It's Own Decisions
Okay, hopefully you watched the movie at least once before looking for this slip-up. When the "flubberized" bowling ball and golf ball first shoot up into the sky, they come back down onto the pavement in front of the garage. This stays accurate throughout the movie-UNTIL the end! When the professor is getting married via video camera, and blows the house up, the balls bounce in the walkway to his front door! Must've hit a plane and changed course, I guess...

Perhaps the writers took into account the slight effect of the rotation of the earth. Or perhaps hitting the gravel on the side of his house slightly altered their course although still allowing them to continue their trajectory vertically. I'm more confused as to why they are bouncing at almost the same time throughout the movie, yet in the beginning when the professor "launched" them, they shot straight up into the air at noticably different times. And we all know gravity pulls on all objects with the same amount of force. One of them had to defy physics by slowing down for the other to catch up.
